Welcome to Aberfeldie Primary School

A very big welcome to all of the students and families that make up the Aberfeldie Community. There will be a lot of things happening at our school during 2018, none more obvious than our building program. Preparations for start up where completed late last year and soon I hope to be able to inform the community of progress through regular updates.

I am most excited about the possibilities that were explored last year in our STEM learning program that will be expanded this year. In particular the way in which students combine learning from Science and Maths to solve real life problems. This can sometimes (but not always) have digital applications – but you can guarantee that systems thinking is going to be right at the centre of these tasks. Seeing creativity and original thought being applied to problem solving scenarios is a very exciting thing to witness.

In terms of Student Engagement and Well Being, we will be launching our new values and vision statement developed last year. Our School values are Inclusion, Innovation and Success with our School vision being “to see students succeeding academically, physically and socially supported by innovative teachers and an inclusive community”.

Our staff, students, and community have each had opportunities to list five positive behaviours that support our Vison and Values. These will be extensively displayed around the school and we will regularly revisit them through our newsletter and in classrooms.

Have a great 2018 and I look forward to talking with you further.
